* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoViceCity'': This [[HairTriggerTemper Ricardo Diaz's]] default method of venting his rage whenever something he doesn't like happens. Every mission for him begins with Diaz shooting or breaking something. A horse he bet on lost a race? Kick the TV he was watching the race on over (and threaten to decapitate the horse). Someone delivers some bad news over the phone? Smash the phone to the floor, then throw a vase at a nearby underling. VCR gets unplugged in the middle of a movie? Shoot it a couple times. Pigeon shit on his car? Break out the shotgun. He also clearly doesn't care about collateral damage, since he's rich enough that, in his words, he can replace everything he breaks a hundred times over.

Basically, this is when enraged characters start throwing objects around to express their frustration. They're throwing a tantrum, [[CaptainObvious and throwing objects in the process]].

* ''Children of the Dust'' by British author Louise Lawrence contains a scene where five-year-old William Harnden starts demanding things which, because the world has recently been devastated by a nuclear war, his mother, Veronica, is unable to give him. In the end, he throws Lego bricks at her and yells at her to "buy him a Mars bar", at which point Veronica (the only member of the Harnden family who has ventured out of their house and seen the aftereffects of the war) crosses the DespairEventHorizon.

Both times he ignites his lightsaber and chops up everything in front of him while screaming.
